My father in law is one of these guys that can't sit still for five seconds. He started volunteering as a paramedic on nights and weekends for fun (totally unrelated to his professional skills), had to take a bunch of qualification classes to get into it. Somewhere along the line he got certified to teach the classes. He'd actually take leave from work to teach classes sometimes. I thought he was nuts, until I found out that he's making thirty grand a year teaching...
The other financial mentality that baffles me is people who monetize all their free time. Like, I understand if you have short-term financial goals and need to sacrifice to hit them. But people with decent jobs driving Uber nights and weekends, so they can stuff more money into their retirement accounts?

I'll happily work my awesome job until I'm 65 if I don't have to live like a goddam monk the whole time.The rest of the forum is poor people. ...

The pink on white seersucker has the same picture as the navy candy stripe.
I can't imagine that holding your phone five inches from your face actually counts as "hands-free" though.Maybe it just boils down to "idiots."
I don't understand why people in the car use speakerphone and then hold the phone horizontally in front of their face. Why not just hold it up to your ear? Is it supposedly more comfortable or something?
